Fallout 4 On PS4 Runs Fine, Xbox One Version Can "Stutter"
Prior to the release of Fallout 4, there were reports that the game had frame rate problems on PlayStation 4.
But as it turns out, the PS4 version actually appears to be the better-performing version when compared to the Xbox One iteration (even if the differences are minor).
Digital Foundry compared the two versions and found that Bethesda's latest blockbuster runs at 1080p and "usually" manages to hit 30 frames per second on both consoles. But the Xbox One version is at a "tangible disadvantage" due to the occasional stutter that might be due to problems with the console scheduling data from the hard-drive at speed:
"Entering new areas can see second-long pauses, and even switching weapons sometimes causes problems. Matching runs to the gates of Diamond City shows Xbox One dropping to a record 0fps (zero) while PS4 turns the same corner at 28fps."
Now, this may not be an issue for some gamers and almost certainly won't cripple their enjoyment of an obviously top-quality product. Even so, it does seem clear that when such comparisons have been conducted this generation, the PS4 version ends up performing better more often than not.
Another reason why Sony's console has a significant lead right now...?
